My prayers are with the families of whichever people Muslims just murdered in whatever city Muslims happen to be murdering people today.

In Sweden, while not calling it radical Islamic terrorism, officials now admit the truck killer expressed sympathies with extremist organizations, among them Islamic State, but they didn’t see him as a threat.
The migrant from Uzbekistan is named Rakhmat Akilov and has asked for his defense lawyer to be replaced by a Sunni Muslim, but a court denied his request, documents showed.
So, he’s a Sunni Muslim, though Swedish authorities aren’t saying that.
The attack shattered any sense Swedes had of being insulated from the militant violence that has hit other parts of Europe but politicians have taken a defiant stance, saying Sweden will remain an open, tolerant society.
Yeah, That’ll work!
So the plan is expressed well in this tweet.
The best way to “fight terrorism” is to hose the remains of your former fellow citizens off the sidewalk and carry on like nothing happened. pic.twitter.com/41S4rQh3nz
